VIV

"Viv is an ancestral wine bottled in the first quarter of the moon according to the tradition of our land.

The Ancestral method is a sparkling wine production method using yeasts and sugars of the grapes as opposed to the "technological" approach.

A fresh and delicate sparkling wine to be consumed on several occasions".
